Jury selection is scheduled to resume Thursday morning in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, who is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the May 2020 killing of George Floyd, a Black man. The incident sparked protests worldwide. Two more jurors were chosen Wednesday, replacing two who were cut because they said they couldn’t be impartial after hearing about the city’s historic $27 million settlement with Floyd’s family.

The court, for hours, heard from more potential jurors, with both Chauvin’s attorney and prosecutors questioning them about their knowledge of the case, the protests and Floyd’s death. Jurors faced a battery of questions about whether they could set aside any existing opinions to serve impartially.
